I tried to run -2 but boat didn't want to plane and had to go to inch and a half spacers to get it on plane but looking back think I should have played around with some different props first. I was trying to run 32p five blade herrings and think I was changing one too many things at once to really know. I have been thinking about experimenting again this time one thing at a time

I like the thinking ahead. It's a sweet boat. I can't wait to tell the current owner.

I spent a lot of time boating with him in that boat. I could just see everyone thinking that 2" shorties are the way to go based on how well that boat runs (used to run 90+ in the heat with 4 peeps any day of the week.) Not realizing that it has a different transom cutout. 2" shorties do not work on that boat with the standard x dimension cutout.
